Question explorer center consloe install,

i found a full length explorer center console at the u pull it today. I'm planning the 60/40 to buckets mod. i what i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on installing it, my problem I'm having is the explorer console is from an auto and i have a manual. i was wondering if anyone had pics of what they did for a shifter boot or cover? manual explorers with a console must be as rare as seeing a white buffalo.lol

that cubby pocket unscrews from the back,and you cut the edge of it off, to use it to secure the new shift boot to the console. takes some time but it looks good
